On Target Health

Are you still looking for a program that helps your population with obesity?  Have you tried the biggest loser contest to find that so many people “lose weight” during the challenge but quickly gain it back.  The truth is more times than not most people are losing muscle and not fat during that challenge.  Fat which is the “root cause” to so many chronic diseases has to be the focus but when losing fat does not always mean the scale will move down in the beginning. Most people begin “diets” and the first thing they do is cut out meals, snacks, or simply just not eat.  There is not a cream, drink, or anything else that is going to help you lose weight if your lifestyle and knowledge of your body is not in line. The On Target program helps you to understand your numbers.  It will help you to identify body fat percentage, lean mass percentage, water percentage and your resting metabolic rate.  All these numbers are important to know exactly what your body needs to lose “FAT”.  During the program you have a health coach that provides support, talks thru choices to make with food, and more.  You are constantly being checked to watch your body fat percentage and lean mass because its important to move the fat down and lean mass up.  If you only checked your weight or BMI you probably would not see much change! Please contact us so we can share with you more about the program and how it truly can help you and your employees with the battle of obesity, diabetes,...

Spire Wellness client Delivra earns American Heart Association Award

SARA CROFT JULY 21, 2016 COMMUNITY, COMPANIES, TALENT, TRENDS Indianapolis based email marketing company Delivra was recently named one of 48 fit-friendly worksites in Indiana by the American Heart Association for promoting health and physical activity in the workplace. This comes on the heels of a 2016 Mira Award nomination for Company Culture of the Year. Delivra’s CEO Neil Berman is the brains — or legs — behind the company’s fitness efforts. Known for walking up and down the office while on business calls, Berman’s behavior is the kind of top-down approach to health and wellness that employees get behind. More than half of Delivra’s employees participate in fitness activities offered on-site. How do walking phone calls translate into a company-wide fitness program? I visited Allyson Inglis, office manager and coordinator of Delivra’s wellness initiative, to learn more about why the company received such prestigious recognition and why they decided to pursue a health and wellness program for their employees. Allyson InglisOffice Manager “Neil has always been a proponent of employees as our biggest asset, and investing in them in a myriad of ways in important — one of which is health and wellness,” said Allyson.About one year ago, Delivra provided health and wellness screenings for all team members led by the Marion County Board of Health — at absolutely no cost to employees. The wellness screenings measured their vitals, such as blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and weight. Results were shared with the company but were not associated with employee names to maintain privacy. Overall, about half of Delivra’s employees had screenings and some noted high blood cholesterol, which opened up their eyes to a need for...

Self-Care Relaxation Techniques

Meditation actually makes your mind calmer and more focused. A simple 10 or 15 minutes of meditation can help you overcome stress and find some inner peace and balance. SELF-CARE: RELAXATION TECHNIQUES Pain and stress can end up causing physical, mental or emotional issues. Often this physical or emotional pain significantly impacts our health, happiness and overall quality of life. Learning how to relax can lessen the impact that this pain has on your life. The Pain Cycle Perhaps the first step to healing ourselves is learning to better understand how our body reacts to and deals with stress and pain. Once pain occurs, whether from an injury or other source, your psychological reaction to it can have a strong effect on its intensity and duration. For some people, pain can become a vicious cycle: pain causes anxiety and tension, and anxiety and tension cause more pain. Many common health disorders, such as migraines, involve tension as a contributing source of the initial pain. By using relaxation techniques, one can release tension, greatly reduce certain types of pain and sometimes actually prevent the pain from occurring. Relaxation techniques, such as meditation and breathing exercises, are simple methods you can use to relax and break your pain cycle. Meditation as Medicine Meditation is an activity that can calm your mind and keep you focused on the present. In a meditative state, you can clear your mind of cluttered thoughts and memories. Studies even show meditation is effective in controlling anxiety, enhancing the immune system and reducing conditions such as high blood pressure, substance abuse and chronic pain. There are numerous...
